Society for Women in Social Sciences and Humanities Call for Organizing Committee Members!
SWiSH, the Society for Wom*n in Social Sciences and Humanities, is looking for students and scientific staff from across ETH to join the organizing committee of the Gender & Science Lecture Series. The lecture series is part of the Science in Perspective program offered by D-GESS. Each week, a guest speaker from a different discipline within the natural, engineering, social and environmental sciences gives an insight into how gender affects knowledge production in their field.
After a first successful run of the course in the autumn term 2021, we are now looking for members from across ETH to join our organizing committee. Tasks include
- selecting and booking potential guest speakers (also a great way to get to know interesting senior scientists in your field personally!)
- putting together the semester program and course syllabus
- advertising the lecture series in ETH
- attending to guest speakers coming from outside Zurich
- moderating guest lectures and introducing speakers
Masters students, PhDs, and Postdocs are all welcome. It is possible to work exclusively on one set of tasks and/or to commit time only for a particular phase of the organisation process.
Have a look at last year’s program to get an idea of what we do: https://polybox.ethz.ch/index.php/s/DsYuGwfpkqpqTSA
